The Leading Informatics for Tomorrow (LiFT) Scholars Program is a multi-institutional program offered at the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI and Ivy Tech Community College Central Indiana.
Our goal is to increase the quality and quantity of information technology (IT) professionals by offering scholarships to students who demonstrate financial need and prepare students to enter the informatics and IT workforce and/or to pursue graduate studies upon graduation.
Since fall 2017, LiFT supported:
- 20 students each year from the School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI who are pursuing the bachelor’s degree in informatics
- 20 students from Ivy Tech who are pursuing associate degrees in the School of Information Technology
Through our efforts, we seek to support 60 bachelor’s degree graduates and 80 associate’s degree graduates.
